Bobby (Bob) G. Neible passed away peacefully in Gibson City, Illinois on April 26, 2022.

Bob was born March 23, 1935 in Harrisburg, Illinois to Roscoe and Lillie Neible. He married Elizabeth (Liz) Dorch in November of 1953 who survives along with Patti Underwood (Larry), Stephen Neible (Kim) and four grandchildren Michael Bayless (Jill), Amy Woodward (Robert), Kelly Burrell (Sean) and Eric Neible and seven great grandchildren.

Early on Bob worked at his sister’s restaurant in Harrisburg, Illinois where he met his wife of 69 years, Liz. He moved to Peoria, Illinois to pursue a career with Caterpillar Inc. where he worked in plant security for over 30 years. He also served the citizens of Creve Coeur and later Morton, IL for nearly 30 years on their respective volunteer fire departments. He enjoyed camping with his family, fishing, square dancing and electronics and owned one of the first citizen band radios (CBs) in the tri-county area. After raising their family in Morton, Bob and Liz retired to their home in Lake of the Ozarks where they enjoyed retirement until a few years ago when they moved to Champaign, Illinois for health reasons. Second only to his family, Bob loved being on the lake more than anything. For this reason, his family will return him to the lake for his final resting place in a small cemetery near their former home.

Private services are being held Sunday, May 1 at Morgan Memorial Home, Savoy, IL. A private graveside service will take place at Union Missionary Baptist Cemetery, Rocky Mount, Missouri. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Missouri Department of Conservation.
